This paper presents a TV content augmentation system that enhances the contents of TVprograms by retrieving context related data and presenting them to the viewers without the necessity of another device. The paper presents both the conceptual description of the system and a prototype implementation. The implementation utilizes program descriptions crawled from web resources in order to extract named entities such as person names, locations, organizations, etc. For this purpose, a rule based Named Entity Recognition (NER) algorithm is developed for Turkish texts. Information about the extracted entities is retrieved from Wikipedia with the help of semantic disambiguation and its summarized form is presented to the users. A set of experiments have been conducted on two different data sets in order to evaluate the performance of the rule based NER algorithm and the behavior of the TV content augmentation system.
